I’m not sure I every shared this with you all, but I have a secret love. Apparently I am a big dreamer because there are just so many things I want to do in this world. One of them: Play the Steel Drum.
I’ve never run into a short Jewish girl with brown curly hair playing the steel drums down in the subway, but if I did, I would be so impressed. I’d also give her lots of money.
Maybe it’s the shiny silver metal that lures to towards this musical talent. Or maybe it’s the joyous sound of the drum that reminds me of of Jamaica and all its beauty. And jerk meats.
I just think it’s a beautiful instrument that would be fun to play. Maybe for a little spare change down in the Union Square Subway.
Would you pay to see me?

Happy 4th of July everyone! Eat lobsters, have bbqs, watch fireworks, but don’t set any off or you’ll lose a finger!
